"On May 25, a blind girl mistakenly got down at a wrong bus stop. A man took her to the street on the pretext of helping her cross the road, but raped her. Police have arrested the man. I met the girl and we are completely helping her. But really -- is there no limit to the animalistic mentality," she wrote on Twitter in Hindi.
